Not this time …

As much as I would have been thrilled to have my name on this list with the other athletes representing Canada at the 2012 Olympic Games, it’s going to have to wait until 2016. Lanni and I had our appeal denied by the SDRCC arbitrator this morning. Am I disappointed, yes. Am I devastated, definitely not. You just don’t know …

Vancouver Victory

Another great weekend. Yes, indeed. So, I flew to Vancouver for the weekend, to run the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon. For some reason, flying to Vancouver seems like a long flight, much longer than to Europe. Strange. Anyway, Steve picked Eric, Reid and I up at the airport and drove us to the hotel (thanks again, Steve). As soon as …

It was also fairly intense with a 10 km hilly race, a decent 6 x 1.2 km speed session on the track, and a 44 km long run (with my buddy, Clayton). I’ve been taking one day off every two weeks …

We thoroughly enjoyed our action-packed weekend. Jonathan and the boys had fun running the 2 km and enjoyed the amphibus ride. The kids loved the hotel and …

Back to Ottawa…Two Years Later

It’s been two years since our family headed to the Ottawa Race Weekend. In 2010, we were a family of 4 and I ran a 2:39 to give me a National Champion title in the marathon. That weekend, Jonathan took our eldest on an amphibus ride, which was a huge hit while I stayed back at the hotel to nap …

Running Along the Grand

A few weeks ago, the Globe and Mail sent Kevin to Brantford for a little photo shoot. It was a beautiful day along the trails beside the Grand. Boy, I love running along there. Pictures are property of the Globe and Mail and cant be reproduced or republished.
